PSAT testing will begin next Wednesday, October 10th. Please be sure that scholars are well-rested and well-fed and on campus no later than 7:50 a.m. on Wednesday. Testing is mandatory and will begin promptly at 8:00 a.m.
The testing room assignments have been posted on the wall in the administrative wing of campus. Scholars, please note your room assignments today so that you’ll know where to go on Wednesday morning. Also, be sure to double-check your assignments because we have made quite a few adjustments, so your room assignments may have changed since our practice PSAT last week.
Scholars, please note that personal items are not permitted in the testing rooms. All backpacks and electronic devices, including smart watches, should be kept at home on the day of testing. Please bring only what will be absolutely necessary for you to have for class periods 1 and 2 on Wednesday.
Scholars must bring the following items on test day:
1. No. 2 pencil(s);
2. an eraser; and
3. a permitted calculator to use on the calculator math portion of the exam.
The regularly scheduled exams will take approximately 3 hours and 50 minutes to administer, not including preadministration sessions or breaks.
A Special Note to Scholars and Parents: Scholars must remain quiet for the entire day on Wednesday due to extended testing that will be taking place in various locations across our campus for the duration of the day and, perhaps, after school.
Regarding the PSAT, the close alignment between the PSAT/NMSQT and the SAT means that scholars can prepare for the PSAT/NMSQT by accessing the Official SAT Practice on Khan Academy for free, personalized, online practice (satpractice.org).
